**PsyDAG**, Saturday, February 9, 2008 at 2:22pm1) sounds fine.

2) How can you determine the percentages without knowing the Standard Deviation? You need a measure of variability.

3) The probability of picking a reduced DC is 1/6, not reduced = 5/6. The probability of picking 2 of each is 1/6 * 1/6 * 5/6 * 5/6 (multiply).

4) A random sample means that*every*student has an equal probability of being in the sample. Reconsider your answer.

5) Right.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

**Jon**, Saturday, February 9, 2008 at 3:01pmI'm sorry #2 says For 2000 patients, a blood-clotting time was normally distributed with a mean of 8 seconds and a standard deviation of 3 seconds. What percent had blood-clotting times between 5 and 11 seconds?

Is #4 A?
